I will be adding on to the Local News Clarksville TN | Business Spotlight blog as time allows. I think we all owe the local Mom and Pop stores first shot at our business and I will highlight some of the better ones we have in our great town on this page.
Local News Clarksville TN and Spotlight for Clarksville Business
Yada Yada Yada
I’ve been seeing a Facebook post from time to time about Yada Yada Yada, so I thought I would give them a try this morning. I am a big fan of New York style bagels and have yet to find a good place in Clarksville TN that serves bagels.
As soon as I open the door to Yada Yada Yada it was like being back home on the East Coast. The place has a nice trendy but casual bright feel to it. As I scan the room I see my old friend Joe Padula of the Joe Padula radio show, it was fitting to see Joe in this New York style deli.
I ordered an Everything bagel with egg and bacon along with an expresso to go. This is the best and closest thing to an East Coast deli/bagel shop I have found since leaving the DC area 10 years ago. I think I may have found a new regular coffee and breakfast place and best of al, it’s just a few blocks from both SSF Submission Academy and Caldwell Banker so I will always be close by.

DAE BAK Chophouse
I decided to try out Clarksville TN’s newest Korean restaurant Das Bak Chophouse on Fort Campbell Blvd for lunch today. It’s in the old Mom’s Restaurant location, which was also a Korean eatery.
The place is casual as you can get, it’s kind of like going to a friends house to eat. The portions are large and it comes with all the great side dishes you expect from a Korean restaurant. I told my wife Kat, that it wasn’t my Korean grandma in the back but it is for sure someones Korean grandmom in the back cooking. It’s about as authentic as you will find anywhere in town, it’s not a fancy expensive Korean BBQ, it’s more your everyday home cooking for your average Korean family and I really like that.
If you like Asian food an are looking for a new place to try, give them a go. I think you may like it, I know I did.
I, unfortunately, don’t have their website URL but you can call them at 931-645-1114.
Kohana on Wilma Rudolph Blvd is the original upscale sushi restaurant in Clarksville TN. While Chinese buffets and Japanese restaurants in town have pre-dated Kohana, none of them specialized in sushi like Kohana did when they opened for business in 2007. There are a few other really good sushi places in town now but Kohana is still my favorite one, as a matter of fact, my wife and I had lunch there today.
They just recently updated the seating which was showing it’s age and now the place looks much closer to when it first opened. The family that owns Kohana still run the show and even host and serve customers.
My kids love the hot towels that Kohana gives you as soon as you are seated. If you haven’t been there, you have to treat yourself to the Rolls Royce and the Amazing Grace with a bottle of hot sake.
Riverside Bicycle Shop
Riverside Bicycle Shop is my FAVORITE store in Clarksville TN. They are the last of the Mom and Pop bicycle shops left in the area. Riverside Bicycle is a local family owned business and they know their business very well. I have owned high-end bikes made by Voodoo, Yeti, Litespeed, Jamis Dakar Pro, and my current Cannondale so I have been around nice bikes and good service and I am here to tell you that Riverside Bicycle ranks up there with the best in service.
Riverside carries great brand name bikes such as Santa Cruz, Haro, GT, Scott, Giant, Redline, and Cannondale. The owners are always there to help out the customers and their mechanics are awesome.
My kids are really into riding now, my son Taggart has a Cannondale mountain bike that I bought from Riverside Bicycles and he loves it and it came with a lifetime tune-up warranty. My daughter Estella is about to get a Cannondale from them as well. You truly can’t beat the service that Riverside Bicycle Shop offers.

Bink’s Outfitters is one of my favorite stores in the Clarksville TN area. They are some of the biggest and best names in Outdoor living.
Bink’s is a welcome addition to Downtown Clarksville TN. I often find myself walking around and shopping at Bink’s while we are waiting on a table at the Blackhorse Pub, Edward’s Steakhouse or before a show at the Roxy.
This past Saturday I picked up a NorthFace winter coat that was normally $300+ on sale for 50% off. Bink’s carries top-notch hardcore outdoor gear as well as casual clothing, they also have hard to find brands like ARC’TERYX and Mountain Hard Wear which makes great lightweight gear for when I go mountain biking in foul weather.
Bink’s has done an awesome job of repurposing an old building and giving it and the downtown area new life. Check them out if you already haven’t. Tell them Ron Dayley sent you.
Binks Outfitters is Middle Tennessee’s premier outdoors store.
